The National Assembly has reconsidered and passed seven bills that were passed by both chambers of National Assembly and transmitted to the Clerk of the National Assembly, CNA, Alhaji Mohammed Sanni-Omolori for onward transmission to President Muhammadu Buhari for his assent.
The Senate action on Tuesday followed a motion on “Committal of bills to the Committee of the Whole” moved by the Senate Leader, Senator Ahmad Lawan, APC-Yobe North during plenary in Abuja.
The bills include Nigerian Aeronautical Search and Rescue Bill, 2018; Climate Change (Est, etc) Bill, 2018; Chartered Institute of Pension Practitioner of Nigeria (Est, etc) Bill, 2018 and Chartered Institute of Training and Development of Nigeria (Est, etc) Bill, 2018.
The rest are National Institute of Credit Administration (Est, etc) Bill, 2018; Digital Rights and Freedom (Est, etc) Bill, 2018 and Nigerian Film Corporation (Repeal & Re-enactment) Bill, 2018, respectively.
Presenting the motion, Senator Lawan, explained that after critical examination of the bills, the Directorate of Legal Services of the National Assembly observed some fundamental issues which required fresh legislative action on some clauses in the bills.
The affected bills with their clauses include: Nigerian Aeronautical Search and Rescue Bill, 2018 – Clause 2 (1)(2); Climate Change (Est, etc) Bill, 2018 – Clause 2 (1)(4), 3(1)(f), 5(2), 7(1)(a) (2)(a), 8, 9, 17(1); Chartered Institute of Pension Practitioner of Nigeria (Est, etc) Bill, 2018 – Clause 11 and the Chartered Institute of Training and Development of Nigeria (Est, etc) Bill, 2018 – Clause 18 (2) & (6).
Also, National Institute of Credit Administration (Est, etc) Bill, 2018 – Clause 7 (3)(5) and 8 (1)(3); Digital Rights and Freedom (Est, etc) Bill, 2018 – Clause 4 (1)(2)(3) and the Nigerian Film Corporation (Repeal & Re-enactment) Bill, 2018 – Clause 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18 and 19.
The Senate Leader informed that “a technical committee of the Senate, House of Representatives and Directorate of Legal Services met and worked on the clauses”.
Relying on Order 1(b) and 53(6) of Senate Standing Order, Senator Lawan urged the Senate to “rescind its decision on the affected clauses of the bills as passed and recommit same to the Committee of the Whole for reconsideration and passage”.
The Senate therefore unanimously reconsidered and passed the bills in the Committee of the Whole.

Thank you for fighting with me to complete the man I am. ‘Thank you for your encouragement when things are hard, for the love you give me. The purest heart. I love you so much. Queen of queens ♥️ #mumma #lioness #queen#iloveyou.’
